Here is our preview for tonight’s game:

Wayne Simmonds and the Leafs are welcoming a very special guest to tonight’s game, on his 21st birthday, no less. Happy birthday. Isaiah!

Former Leafs:

Literally no one!

But I found something....

In 2018 the Leafs traded sixth round picks with the Blue Jackets...

In 2019 the Blue Jackets traded that sixth round pick with a seventh to Detroit for a fifth...

The pick the Leafs gave up was eventually used to select Gustav Berglund who, uh, hasn’t done much.

The pick the Leafs acquired they used to drafted the one... the only... Pontus Holmberg!
